New Music Seance 2008: Concert No. 1, Birds in Warped Time (video)

Published December 6, 2008

Summoning the specters of musical forbears, and channeling the spirits of their successors, the 2008 New Music Seance Concerts featured a marathon of performances by pianist Sarah Cahill, and the dynamic violin/piano duo of Kate Stenberg and Eva-Maria Zimmermann. The concerts were held in the intimate, candle lit setting of the historic Arts & Crafts styled Swedenborgian Church in San Francisco on December 6, 2008. The first concert, entitled “Birds in Warped Time”, featured music by the pioneering American composers Percy Grainger and Steed Cowart; a host of women composers including Grażyna Bacewicz, Meredith Monk, and Lois V. Vierk; two Asian composers, Somei Satoh and Tan Dun; European masters of the avant-garde such as Per Nørgård, Luciano Berio, and Oliver Messiaen; and Dylan Mattingly a promising talent who has yet to reach his 20th birthday.
